Recs near Atlantic Theater?

Here's the rub: The Atlantic Theater is located on West 20th street between 8th and 9th avenues. Will be attending 2 plays there next month and need some planning guidance. Yes, I am asking a month in advance because I have to cater to some specific culinary issues. One guest in attendance is a vegetarian, one person is allergic to seafood entirely, another person only eats poultry and seafood, no red meat. Will someone please help?? We are looking for something that is within walking distance of the theater that has nice ambiance, what I mean by that is no dive bars. In fact, no bars at all because the vegetarian is a stickler for presentation. Any cuisine will do it just has to be something that can accomodate all of the other ridiculous requests. Please help!!

  1. maybe Bottino? the Italian menu should work for everyone, and they have a lovely garden out back if the weather's nice. the food isn't spectacular, but it's not bad.

    1. We've been to that theater once, but we ate afterwards and did a late walk-in at Gramercy Tavern's Tavern Room.

      Gascogne, the charming French bistro, is on 8th, b/t 17th & 18th. The food's delicious, and the vegetarian will be happy with "presentation." As to whether there is anything on the menu that he or she can order, there are a couple of apps + a salad and one vegetarian main course. The others with restrictions will have plenty to choose from.
